    If sanyone is interested im back from a 10 year lay off simply because there is still no one out there building better sounding guitars then mine!!!!


    You only have to look at my clientelle to see.

    Peter wells, rose tattoo, Metallicca, Uglykid joe, Lita ford, guns and rose, baby animals, kings of the sun, the angels, noiseworks, velvet revolver, whitesnake, screaming jets, russell crowes band, Was asked by Bon Jovi (richie sambora ) to make 2 guitars for them but turned them down as they did not want to pay, and thats all i can remeber for now...

    any one else in australia even the world have a list like that?

    I make the best hardrock/metal guitars in the world and im quite willing to put anyone top the test.

    LIFE TIME WARRENTY ON NECKS!!!!!! who else has the balls to do that?



    LOL.

    Doing a special run of neck and body kits at the moment for $360 perkit body and neck design of your choice.

    Can make you an ESP copy for example and instead of charging $4500 like ESP i can do for under $1500.00

  8. I wonder if anybody contacted the celebrities he claims to have built for, and let them know that he is using their names
     
  9. Hi.

    ^Yes they did. Someone was a family friend of Lita Ford, and some knew the GNR and Metallica people.

    They were "amused" ;).

    Regards

  10. I read all 37 pages of that sucker and I have to say that it is the funniest thread I've ever seen, and those were the ugliest guitars I've ever seen.
    Holy Crap! :eek:

    its just too bad that this guy doesnt build basses!
     
  12. No, but you CAN get used blue jeans from him on eBay... :eyebrow:
     
  13. I wish to retract anything positive I may have said about De Vries.

    I was conned by him into believing that the bass he sold me was one of his custom models.

    Anybody got a current address for him?

    My mother always said: "whenever you engage in battle, you must decide: is this the hill I want to die for?"

    The moral of the story? Pick your battles carefully. Even a rudimentary glance at 'deVries' sheds some gothic light on his "craftsmanship", "ethics", "honesty" and "business sense".

    "A man who rises to the defense of a fool is seldom proven otherwise himself."
